Look! Modern Cabin

Look! Modern Cabin

With the nights getting chilly we're starting to dream about being tucked away in a cozy cabin on a snowy hillside. Later this week we'll be featuring some woodland inspired housetours but it's wednesday evening, the light is getting low and we're feeling a little bit sleepy and would really like for that vacation to begin now.

These images are of stylist Robin Glaser's vacation cabin as posted on Emma's Blog. It does a good job of showing exactly the vibe we would be going for if we a) owned a cabin or b) had the wherewithal to put something this great together. It has the right mix of 'casual cabin' and 'fancy cabin'. Surprisingly the knotty pine was left as-is instead of being painted white as we ourselves have advised people to do. Leaving the wood exposed helps to make the place feel warm, cozy and inviting. And with the addition of some modern pieces (like the case study daybed) and a simple palette of whites, creams and browns the cabin takes on a bit of sophistication without feeling pretentious. We know that taxidermy can be a passionate subject for many, so we'll leave that to you. In the meantime we'll be dreaming of spending time in that bed, a cup of hot cocoa and a season of 30 Rock bedside.
